Project Brief

Live Farming is the project that I did at Leah’s workshop Rate My Set Up. We learn about photogrammetry and 3D animation in Unity and Lens Studio. For final delivery, we are asked to make a Mix Reality collage through simulation, live compositing, animation, live chroma-keying with OBS. 


Tools

Agisoft Metashape, OBS, Unity

Concept

In my Mixed Reality set up, I am playing farming game on my Nintendo DSi while taking care of the virtual plants in space. The material applied on the plants is the texture(skin) of the photogrammetry of the Nintendo DSi, which gave the plants the unique colors.


Design Process



It was super fun to see how we turn 200 pictures of the object into a 3D model despite the process involves hours of rendering in the background. I am also fascinated by the lumpy form and the texture generated by photogrammetry.




I also experimented with scanning larger objects, which I scanned the table for toast art making (a food-making project by my sister). The photogrammetry model captured the wooden texture of the table, the packaging of the toasts and the drawings on the toasts.
